Focusing on Love and Apprecation

Focusing on love and appreciation

Lately, my focus has been on love, not just romantic love, but love for all people. Being truly loving enhances everything about life. For instance, it is hard to have a bad day, when you are focused on loving everyone around you. On the opposite side of the spectrum is how quickly the day can collapse into chaos when you are being hurtful to others. As you go through your day, look for ways that you can manifest and cultivate love for others. Have you ever noticed how some mothers pick apart every fault in their children? Yet, other mothers find love and amusement in their children's behavior-even when they are on the edge of being naughty? Try to be a person who sees the value in others and appreciates that value.

I think one reason why we, as humans, tend to be critical is that so much of our lives depends on critical analysis. Our jobs require us to perform SWOT analyses. Any project requires acute attention to details in order to perfect anything that seems less than perfect. However, I believe we can make a mental shift when it comes to people. Love the person, appreciate the contribution, and celebrate the uniqueness. Strive to understand that people come from different perspectives. When you focus on love, appreciation, and understanding, you will be the biggest benefactor. You will feel good and you will attract great things to you. Yes, the other person also benefits from your positive thoughts and reinforcements, too. It is a win-win.

Why not experiment today? Everytime you feel critical of another person, try to change it into  a statement of love and appreciation in your mind. Take notice of how your day changes in response to your shift in thoughts.
"Love one another". John 13:34 (NIV)
